I've had it
for years. I got it from Ken Anderson. On mine the variegation is brightest when
it first comes up, but still visible in fall. I'm thinking that the photo from
Le Jardin Anglais is not the 'Inaho' I have, but something very similar.
Schmid's book describes (and pictures) a sieboldii 'Mediopicta', which sounds
more like what I have. As Tim says, 'Inaho' is supposed to be sterile, and the
plant I have sets plenty of seed, as sieboldii 'Mediopicta' is supposed to do.
Maybe our plants came from the same source.
The answer is now Kisuji
ex Inaho ex ex tardiva aurea striata.
virtually sterile also, so dont rely on any special

Thanks Tim. I just looked it up in Zilis' book,
something I could have done 1st, huh? But this is so much more
fun! When I bought mine from Hideko Gowen....maybe 6 years ago....I was
told by some that it would turn all green during the summer. I've found
that the variegation lasts 'till very late summer for me.
What have others experienced?
